Dr. Nora Antoine (South Dakota) is member of a tiospaye (large family) that has worked in service of community for generations. As a young child, Nora’s grandfather encouraged her and her siblings to ‘get an education.’ Working towards educational equity is an ancestral mandate and commitment to community including SoDak which are traditional Lakota homelands. Educational equity is a critical component in affirming native identity and a mechanism in strengthening tribal sovereignty and from a broader perspective; and the work of educational equity is for all students, of all ages, of all backgrounds, who are deserving of a quality education.
